Netherlands Embassy in Dublin Ireland
08 February 2017 The contract to build the long-awaited national children’s hospital in Dublin has been awarded – at a price €300 million more than the original budget of €650 million. BAM Ireland, one of the State’s largest building contractors, has been selected as the preferred bidder to build the hospital for a price understood to be close to €1 billion, The Irish Times has learned. This does not include the cost of IT or equipment for the hospital, which is likely to exceed €100 million in each instance.
20 January 2017 The Dutch agri & food sector has further strengthened its leading position in the world market. In 2016, Agri & Food exports totalled almost 94 billion euro, compared to 90 billion in 2015. Agricultural products accounted for 85 billion euro and agricultural materials, knowledge and technology accounted for 9 billion: a new record. This means the agri & food sector now comprises 22% of total exports. This is shown by provisional figures from Statistics Netherlands (CBS) and Wageningen Economic Research. Minister for Agriculture Martijn van Dam announced these figures during the opening of International Green Week in Berlin, the largest international agricultural trade exhibition in the world.
